Valentines Day Raptor Fest

A cracking couple of hours spent watching the marsh at Llanrhidian yesterday afternoon. Highlights were prolonged views of two male and two female Hen Harriers with all four birds in the sky together at one point, a very showy Short-eared Owl and a Barn Owl briefly at last light. Two Merlin were chasing each other towards Whiteford NNR, a Green Sandpiper and four Dark-bellied Brents flew through and seven Common Buzzard and four Common Kestrel were also counted. Good numbers of Little Egret and Grey Heron also present.
